The search continues for a missing 33-year-old Powell River man.

New information is leading investigators to believe Vaughn Baumgardt was spotted sometime Saturday morning (Aug. 21st), between 9:30 am and 11:30 am, walking westbound on Pine Tree Road just east of Highway 101.

Police say Baumgardt reportedly crossed Highway 101 and had an ‘interaction’ with a driver, “who may have had to stop abruptly to avoid hitting him.”

According to a Thursday Powell River RCMP release, Baumgardt was seen shirtless wearing gym shorts.

Those who knew Baumgardt last saw him earlier Saturday morning. He was at a friend’s house on Highway 101 near Skeeter Jacks. Between midnight and 1:00 am, police say he left alone and hasn’t been heard from since.

Anyone with information as to Baumgardt’s whereabouts is asked to call the Powell River RCMP at (604) 485-6255.
